St. Barbara’s Cathedral, Italian Court, Royal Mint and Ossuary in Sedlec
The historical town of Kutná Hora, now with a Unesco World Heritage listing, used to play an important role in the 13th century when silver ore was discovered here. Its fame lasted until the 16th century when silver resources were depleted. Its increasing wealth and prosperity led to an architectural boom in the town. And it gave rise to the construction of many beautiful monuments - the Gothic five-naved St. Barbara Cathedral, the Italian Court with the Royal Mint, the Stone House and other Gothic and Renaissance landmarks. Not far from Kutná Hora in nearby Sedlec is a uniquely amazing sight - the Baroque ossuary. The ossuary is decorated with the bones of some 40,000 people, and the decorations even include a human bone chandelier. The town is small enough to be seen in a single day, is free of the ugly, Communist-era buildings that plague many of the country's small towns, and is not very far from Prague - all these factors make it a popular day trip.
